The Feasibility of a Biotest Battery Applicability to Construct an Early Warning System for Leachate from Solid Wastes and Recycled Materials
In Japan, public concerns become more sensitive against the construction and operation of landfill sites since the leachates from them were reported as hazardous chemicals for human and ecosystem by the mass media. The chemical analysis can identify the presence of toxic compounds but not all in leachate to assess the risk because of the limitation of applied analytical methods. Furthermore, the analytical cost is a serious burden for landfill owners and managers.
